Message from the Principal
Dear Parents and Caregivers,
All students in grades K-2 will have the opportunity to acquire Spanish skills and/or enrich their current Spanish language skills as a result of our new Spanish FLES program. To support students who enter Jefferson speaking predominantly Spanish, we will offer bilingual programs. We will continue to offer Italian as a FLES program for students in grades 3-5. All of these programs support the district’s mission to develop world languages.
All students in kindergarten - 2nd grade will have the opportunity to take Spanish enrichment classes as part of their CAMPEL (computers, art, music, physical education and language) schedule. Kindergarteners – 2nd graders will still visit the library with their homeroom teachers to select books to borrow. Every year, we hope to build our Spanish FLES program and eventually offer Spanish to all students in grades K- 5.
Students who are Spanish Dominant (stronger in Spanish than English) have the opportunity to enter our Spanish bilingual program in grades kindergarten- Second. The program will teach children English literacy skills while maintaining their first language, Spanish. We will also be offering Spanish for 2nd graders after school. Participation will be based upon space and recommendations.
We will continue to have a Spanish CILA program for students who are entering grades 3-5. After school Spanish classes will continue to be offered to CILA students in grades 3-5. This year, each grade level will have the opportunity to attend 2 after school sessions per week. Non CILA students in the upper grades may participate in the program. However, invitations will be based upon space and recommendations.
If you are interested in after school Spanish, please email Ms. Stevenson @ email@example.com
Jefferson will continue to offer an Italian language program for students in grades 3-5. Currently the program is only for students who are on or above grade level in literacy and mathematics. During the school day, Italian is taught during our intervention/enrichment period. Italian will continued to be offered after school as well. Students who are not participating in Italian during the school day are invited to attend an enrichment Italian class after school. If you are interested in Italian during the day or after school, please email Ms. Posnick @ firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any questions, please feel free to call me.
